Bachelors in Criminal Justice Degree Provides Backbone for Saint Leo Alumnus' Success

September 26, 2011

Not-for-profit organization AMIkids Big Cypress recently named Ronald Mosher to its local volunteer board of trustees. Mosher graduated from Saint Leo University with a bachelors in criminal justice degree in 1995.

AMIkids Big Cypress empowers at-risk teen boys to make positive decisions that ultimately shape their futures. In partnership with the Florida Department of Juvenile Justice and Collier County Schools, the organization provides education, counseling and behavior modification at its facilities in the Florida Everglades.

Mosher currently serves as Deputy Sheriff at the Collier County Sheriff’s Office and co-owns Peace In Paradise, a Naples-based home watch business.

Mosher's 20 years of criminal justice experience and his strong background from Saint Leo -- one of the nation’s top criminal justice universities -- make him a perfect addition to the AMIkids board.

“We love it when we see our graduates doing community service,” explains Carol Walker, Dean of Saint Leo University’s School of Education & Social Services. “I think it helps current students see the value in volunteering, and hopefully they will feel compelled to give back once they graduate.”
